We’ve seen trailers for most of the wide releases coming out this Christmas, including Assassin’s Creed, Gold, Collateral Beauty, Why Him?, and of course Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is filled with exciting possibilities. Part of the enormous fun in The Avengers films or Captain America: Civil War is seeing these heroes interact with each other, and seeing how their personalities clash in those interchanges. But if you ask Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt, the character he would be most interested in seeing Star-Lord meeting on the big screen would have to be The Punisher.

The hype surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is already very high. Fans are so excited about the sequel that director James Gunn even had to ask people to stop asking him when the trailer was going to arrive. According to his recent barrage of answers to frequently asked questions, it will arrive sometime before Christmas, so just be patient.
Now Chris Pratt is adding to the hype machine in a recent interview where he claims that the movie will be the “biggest spectacle of all time.” And when you have a sequel building that much excitement, it should come as no surprise when a rock star like Steven Tyler says that he wants a role for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, whenever that happens.

Assembling a cast that doesn’t pale in comparison to the original The Magnificent Seven‘s ensemble must not have been easy. We’re still waiting to see how Antoine Fuqua‘s remake of John Sturges‘ western compares to the original, but The Equalizer director certainly put together a cast that inspires promise. Whether they match the charm of the original cast doesn’t really matter, because even if they come halfway to capturing the magic the original cast had, then we’re in for a treat.
Below, watch The Magnificent Seven character vignettes.

Any way you slice it, Kurt Russell appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is amazing news. He’s perfectly cast as the long-lost father of Star-Lord, and the fact that said long-lost dad is actually Ego the Living Planet goes beyond our wildest dreams. (Seriously: I don’t think any of us at /Film could’ve dreamed this up in a hundred years.) So who do we have to thank for this casting coup?
Apparently, Star-Lord himself. According to James Gunn, casting Russell was all Chris Pratt‘s idea. Because if you get the rare opportunity to choose your own dad, why not aim high and go for Kurt Russell? Read More »
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two of the most popular and good-looking stars working in Hollywood today. Both have major franchises to their name, the admiration of droves of fans, and now all those audiences are going to lose their mind when they see these two fall in love in deep space.
Passengers is an original sci-fi romance from Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts and The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum which follows a man (Pratt) who is just one passenger on a colony ship full of thousands in a cryogenic sleep. However, the man finds himself woken up due to a system malfunction, leaving him all alone on this big ship. Desperate for some company, he decides to wake another sleeping passenger, and of course he picks a character played by Jennifer Lawrence.
Now a couple Passengers photos have surfaced online with Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence looking as respectively handsome and pretty as you’d expect. Even a big ole spacesuit doesn’t make Chris Pratt look goofy. Read More »
Even though the blockbuster summer will be over in just a few weeks, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of excitement yet to come this fall. In fact, the arrival of the forthcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven looks just as good if not better than some of the best releases this summer has seen.
Denzel Washington rounds up Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeier to help save a small town from a ruthless industrialist. In the new Magnificent Seven trailer, the whole crew gets a roll call with plenty of new footage to be glimpsed from the western action remake. Plus, there’s also an international trailer with a completely different cut that you can check out as well. Read More »
Even though it won’t hit theaters for over a year, we’re a little bit closer to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 because production just wrapped on the sequel after shooting in New Orleans. Director James Gunn recorded a video on Facebook live announcing that Chris Pratt had finished all his shooting as Star-Lord and later in the day officially announced on Twitter that production overall was also complete.
Below you can get just a little peak behind the scenes with a couple photos featuring Chris Pratt and his stuntman who helps make Star-Lord look like a bad ass. Plus, find out just how pumped Chris Pratt is in the video straight from the set as he says farewell to the entire crew. The video also features confirmation of a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Comic-Con panel coming our way, as was previously hinted at last week. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Before composer James Horner tragically passed away last summer, he was working on a gift for filmmaker Antoine Fuqua. Last year, Fuqua and Horner collaborated on the boxing drama, Southpaw, and the two had discussed reuniting for the upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven. Without seeing any footage — or really discussing the potential score with Fuqua, either — Horner went ahead and starting composing music for the film, much to Fuqua’s surprise. The composer’s generosity didn’t stop there, either, as he paid to put the score together himself and, according to Fuqua, he was the one that convinced him he had to make The Magnificent Seven.
Below, learn more about James Horner’s The Magnificent Seven score and how he encouraged The Equalizer director to move forward with the remake.

Yesterday brought us our first look at Antoine Fuqua‘s The Magnificent Seven in the form of some photos, and today the very first trailer has ridden into town. Denzel Washington leads the Western as Sam Chisholm, a gunslinger hired to protect a small town from a ruthless industrialist (Peter Sarsgaard). He rounds up a group of six other outlaws, played by Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeier.
The Magnificent Seven is, of course, a remake of John Sturges’ 1960 classic, which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. So how do the likes of Washington, Pratt, and Hawke stack up against the original all-star cast that included Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, and Charles Bronson? Watch the Magnificent Seven trailer after the jump.
